Parade today, parade tomorrow

aggidome.jpgThe fog was just clearing as the Aggie parade formed up on the Congress bridge. By the time the band, the mounted unit, the gun, and the corps of cadets had reached the Capitol grounds, only a bit of fog was left, just enough to obscure part of the dome, while ground-level monuments and statuary stood out in sharp relief.

We turned in our winning lottery scratch-offs, went by the credit union, and picked up a calendar at Tesoros. By the time we headed south to choose a tree at Rudolph’s on Lamar at Bluebonnet, there was already a line waiting outside Ringers for the door to open. I bet the Tavern will be busy, too. There were a couple of people on the Avenue begging to buy tickets, but there were none to be had.

The two helicopters that have been buzzing rooftops all over town for a couple of days now are supposedly here to do a flyover at the game. I hope they’ll be gone tomorrow, so that the bands at the Chuy’s parade (starting at 11 am tomorrow) won’t be drowned out.
